The first release of 2014 for Vancouver homeboy Pat Lok features local heroes Bear Mountain. ‘Same Hearts’ is a fun vocal house jam, accompanied by three remixes from Oxford (as featured on Goldroom’s recent Beatport broadcast), Ride The Universe, and Shelby Grey. You can cop the OG mix for **free**, while the other mixes are available on all major digital distributors. Early support from Goldroom, Cosmo Baker, Drop Out Orchestra, Mighty Mouse, and Cyclist.
Loving the latest offering from Vancouver / Portland’s Wake Owl.
Wake Owl will release their debut full length album The Private World of Paradise, produced by Richard Swift (Tennis, Foxygen), on March 4th, 2014 via Rezolute Music. Canadian tour starts February 26th.

Elizabeth Rose’s The Good Life is easily one of the most slept on tracks of 2013. In case you missed it the first time, it recently received a massive club treatment from Emoh Instead – aka half of What So Not (the other half being Flume). That build and drum fill, seriously. The original can’t be improved upon, for which you can blame Shazam’s production, but guaranteed this is gonna be an anthem for whoever plays it. One of my favorite singles of 2013.

Ladies and gentleman — Jonny Dylan Hughes, without the “H” thank you very much. Hughes does a few different things, which make him sexier as an artist. He has a couple different music projects and dabbles in graphic design and runs a style blog as well. The music? Your share of high quality indie-electro rock; worth checking out. A good mix of local acts like Teen Daze, Young Liars, etc… throw a bit of Beach House in there and you’ve got Hughes’ recipe.

To experience a performance from Vancouver-based alternative/indie outfit Philoceraptor is to know them.
The first time I caught them live, front man (?) Justin Penney partied his way off a stool and broke some vital bones in his body, prompting tears (allegedly) and an internet apology – this was preceded by an exquisite rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody, acapella, by fellow vocalist Steve Mann. Not to be outdone, human abacus/drummer Phil Jette held the trio together with the stoic responsibility of mayonnaise in a classic BLT.
Seattle’s Ivan & Alyosha are currently on tour to support their debut album, All The Times We Had, and they will be making a stop at Vancouver’s Media Club on May 9.
All The Times We Had showcases the bands infectious melodic hooks and thoughtful lyrical introspection, presenting songs of struggle, perseverance and spirituality with a resilient, upbeat attitude.
Tickets for their performance at the Media Club (with special guests Jay Nash) are available now via ticketweb.
For a chance to win a pair of tickets, email winnieguestlist(@)gmail.com with your name by May 5 at 5:00pm. Please use “Ivan & Alyosha Contest” in the subject. Must be 19+ to enter.
